What should you consider when choosing your ceramic kiln?

Before we introduce you to the best ovens available on the market, there are a few things to keep in mind when choosing an oven, whether you buy it from an online store or in a physical store.

  1. Think about how big your future pieces are likely to be. A kiln that is too small cannot accommodate larger pieces, and a kiln that is too large takes up a lot of space, is more expensive, and uses more energy.
  2. Don’t just look at the price. Buying three times is more expensive than buying once.
  3. Inquire about the necessary installations and maintenance costs. Not every oven can be plugged into a regular outlet. You may need separate electrical installations or additional fire protection for gas operation.
  4. Think about where you want to place the stove and take measurements. If the oven you bought is too big and doesn’t fit, things will get uncomfortable. Also make sure that the stove fits through the door, window, or through the corridor and stairwell to the 10th floor. (Small joke)
